FRIDAY NOVEMBER 21, 2003 – SATURDAY JANUARY 31, 2004
Founded in Florence in 1966, the radical Italian group Superstudio articulated the intellectual crisis of modernism by creating subversive and provocative visions of the future before disbanding in 1978. The exhibition at Storefront presented an installation of Superstudio’s “Twelve Ideal Cities”, a satirical vision of humanity’s search for the perfect lifestyle originally staged in 1972 at Galleria Schema in Florence. From narratives of cities with names such as “Continuous Production Conveyor Belt City”, “Spaceship City” and “New York of Brains”, the project made predictions for the future of buildings, cities, nature and the cosmos after 20,000 years of civilization. The exhibition was presented in conjunction with Pratt Manhattan Gallery
and Artists Space.
